Whettman Chelmets- “Miniforms 1: Movements” and “Miniforms 2: Ten Pin Alley”
Like many of us in the independent/DIY music world, Matt Clement is a busy adult with a full-time job and a multitudinous host of other obligations and responsibilities. Nevertheless, after the kids are put to bed and the dishes washed and put away, Matt Clement becomes Whettman Chelmets-a multi-instrumentalist maestro and active netizen of the underground music community.
His latest two EP releases are two selections of carefully curated and lovingly remastered tracks from his 2014 Forms, and each EP displays a different aspect of his multi-faceted musical mind:
Miniforms 1: Movements displays his compositional chops and programming prowess. Tracks such as Fugue in C Major and Fall of Frigia demonstrate his advanced knowledge of such sophisticated musical concepts as contrapuntal melody and 12 tone theory.
Miniforms 2: Ten Pin Alley does an about-face in style moving from classical composition to pop. However, “pop” is a term that just doesn’t do justice to this tight and punchy release.
Songs such as I Just Wanna Play and That Man Just Stole That Old Lady’s Purse! again demonstrate a profound eclecticism in style ranging from autotune electropop to gypsy jazz.
So with these two EPs, we see a fun and creative exploration of the many different forms that the world of music has to offer.
Chelmets sums it up succinctly by saying, “I love form.”
In addition to his love of musical forms, Whettman Chelmets has a big place in his heart for you the listener, and as a demonstration of his love and generosity, he has given away free download codes as a special Houdini Mansions exclusive!
